Where in the World Will Cassandra Be?

Terceira (also called “Ilhas Lilás” for the lilac/violet landscape) is one of nine islands in the Azores, which is a string of islands owned by Portugal. In Portuguese, “terceiro” means “third”. What I’ve been told is that it is called the “third” island because it was the third found and explored, or that it is the third largest. I’ll have to look into this!

I’m looking forward to sipping a galão soon–the Portuguese version of a cappuccino with espresso and foamed milk. Yum.
